I downloaded a backup file of my online customer service app. I want to be able to open it in an easily readable format. How do I do that with Base?

Base does not read .sql files. That may need to be used in a specific database depending upon how/where it was generated. Many .sql file are just text files containing SQL code but that does not sound like what you have.

FYI - Base itself is not a database but a front end for databases. You can use it to connect to a variety of different DB's.
